It was printed in black and white so it must be true!

While the rest of the United States news organizations are covering things like hurricanes and the new Republican V.P candidate--here was what I found in our local news yesterday;

Tractor, ATM reported stolen in Missoula
A tractor was stolen and an ATM is missing after an early morning burglary on Airway Boulevard Saturday.
Missoula County Sheriff officials are on the lookout for a suspect who stole a tractor from a business up by the Wye and then used it to remove an ATM from the Airway Boulevard Bank around 2 a.m.
(from KPAX news online)
First of all--only in Montana. Second of all--who doesn't see a tractor with an ATM loaded on it and not think something is a little hinckey??!! Third--is there some rogue farmer out there with an ATM in his barn?! Fourth--is this classified as a redneck bank robbery??!! I'm just sayin.....

LOL! Montana AND East Texas!! We had a couple of guys stock piling four wheelers, trailers, tractors, riding mowers, jet skis, trucks, on and on, on their property in plain sight. AND no one thought it was weird! They only got caught when someone recognized HIS stolen truck at a store in town and called it in! DUH!

Okay, this just cracked me up. My dad grew up in Montana and used to tell stories about stealing outhouses. I guess times have changed and they now steal ATM machines. Too dang funny. But the FUNNIEST thing was you using the word "hinckey" That had me rolling. I've NEVER heard of that word but it is now my NEW FAVORITE WORD! I can't wait to use it!!

I'm probably related to the atm thief!

Too funny. I love odd stories that make the news. I can't let Todd read about this - it will give him ideas.

How funny!!!! The thief is one creative and resourceful criminal. I agree with the last comment about "hinckey".. Just when I thought I learned all the English there is to learn, plop! A new word comes along. I'm going to start using it here in NorCal and see if it catches on :-)

I had no idea hinckey was so unknown--maybe I spelled it wrong. I tried to find a follow up article but nothing. Seriously--just where does one hide a tractor and an ATM??!! Who needs fantasy?? Reality is much more entertaining!
